This was one Kansas city premier fountains it served as the entrance to country club plaza. Now it is no more until the reconstruction is finished. They are rebuilding or upgrading the fountain so can not see it now.

This fountain was a mainstay when I was young some 45 years ago. But today it is a place to wash and panhandle. It is adjacent to the Plaza and as with the Plaza it is to be avoided.

A famous landmark next to the world famous country club plaza. If you are going to the plaza, it is worth the effort to go to the fountain for the view of the plaza.

The fountain sets inside a large park with paved walking track. Plan on walking around the fountain and actually look at each section. Each sculpture on the fountain tells a story.

The fountains are a delight to watch on a hot summer day! The way the water dances is most intriguing and the spray cools you down!

If you have never been to the Country Club Plaza then you are missing out. This Fountain is at the entrance and is the most amazing fountain out of the many KC has to offer.

Stopped by on a very hot afternoon and there were no other fountain lovers around so I got wonderful pictures.
